About Me

I am a PhD student under A/P. Min-Yen Kan. I am interested in Information Retrieval, Recommendation Systems, Social Media, Machine Learning, and Data Mining. I am currently working on building a recommendation system for online health communities. I am also interested in building large-scale online web-services. You can find my CV here.

Earlier, I graduated from IIT Bombay in Computer Science and Engineering. As part of my master's thesis, I worked in the area of Cloud Computing and Virtualization under the co-supervision of Prof Umesh Bellur, and A/P. Purushottam Kulkarni.
